Comment on the phasing of the object
Phasing Comment:
(C.-3.10m. Bottom of tholos) Trench C is very poorly recorded but contained the stone roads which are Halaf in this section and a 'tholos ossuary'. Presumable this comes from the bottom of the tholos ossuary, the tholoi are traditionally Halaf so presumable this is as well.
